Main instrument is the lead guitar. I am very confident with my playing and focus a lot on working my audience. My biggest compliments are on my contagious smile and the "natural" way I play the guitar that influences others to play. I sing mostly backing harmonies and lead several songs each night.
I currently play with the local band, Krazy Train, and also Still Alive, a reverence to Pearl Jam. I also freelance when possible
My personal goal is to "Bring Live Music Back To LIfe" and to inspire others, especially children, to pick up an instrument or learn a new one.
